Health and Safety Training Given
to Teachers at OBMS
Due to the ongoing health and safety
problems at OBMS, health and safety training was provided
on December 12, 2007 by NYCOSH and the Association to
more than 60 teachers at OBMS. This training was in
response to the NYCOSH report that indicated ongoing
mold problems that are impacting the health and safety
of students and staff.
The training was well received by the
staff. One staff member was quoted as saying, "The
training was needed and timely. There are teachers who
have been suffering from the mold problems for a long
time now. To date the District has not addressed the
problem adequately. The District has promised to speak
with us about it, but has not followed through."
